Make sure you check these out! "I stumbled across TS Joyce a little over a year ago and was hooked from the first read. I can't pick just one book as I love every single one, but the characters in Damons Mountains are my favorites. TS books dish out a ton of witty humor and heart wrenching feels. Lumberjack Werebear is book 1! Enjoy!!"
Painter, Brooke Belle, is running from her past and hoping that a few weeks in a quaint country cabin will bring her artistic muse back from the brink. But when she lands smack dab in the middle of Asheland Mobile Park, she’s sure there’s been a mistake. Not only has her mentor rented her a dilapidated mobile home in the middle of nowhere, but the trailer park is filled with big, burly, growly, flirty, sexy-as-hell lumberjacks. And one in particular is making her think that maybe she’s landed right where she needs to be.
Tagan James has a lot on his shoulders. As second in a woodcutting crew of bear shifters, he’s got all he can handle keeping his people from tearing each other apart on the job site. But when the beautiful, and terribly human, Brooke Belle lands on his doorstep, all honest and vulnerable and pulling at his animal’s protective instincts, he has to decide whether to boot her out of his park to protect his heart, or take a risk and save her muse.
Every bear shifter knows finding a mate can destroy a dominant like him. But as Brooke shows Tagan just how strong she can be, he’s second guessing everything—including his vow to never fall for a woman.
"The reason I picked this book is that it is one of the first ebooks I downloaded and read and I loved the military background and the strong honorable imperfect male hero in Adam. Also it introduced me to a great author and the world of BDSM stories." Three men.

One unbreakable bond.
And one very hot club.

"Mr perfect is a suspense contemporary romance that sucks you in from the beginning and can I say hot and steamy? The hero is a bit of a jerk on the surface but he quickly becomes book boyfriend material. Love this one because it will also make you laugh and cry, it is a roller coaster from beginning to end." Written in her “trademark darkly sensual style” (Booklist), New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard brings us an electrifying page-turner of passion and suspense with a captivating premise… What would make the perfect man? That's the delicious topic that heats up the proceedings at a certain table of professional women at their favorite restaurant. What qualities would he have? Would he be tall, dark, and handsome? Caring and warmhearted—or would just muscular do? Jaine Bright and her three girlfriends start off with the basics: he'd be faithful and reliable, the responsible type, and have a great sense of humor. But as the conversation picks up momentum, so do the quartet's requirements for Mr. Perfect as and they write down a tongue-in-cheek checklist that's both funny and racy. The next thing they know, the List, as it has come to be called, becomes an overnight sensation, spreading through their company like wildfire and grabbing the interest of local newspapers and television coverage. No one expected this avalanche of attention for something that began as a joke among friends. But the joke turns deadly serious when one of the four women is murdered... The prime suspect in the case is the victim's boyfriend, who was one of a number of men who found the List sexist and offensive. An impenetrable alibi gets him off the hook, but a deadly stalker targets the three remaining friends. Now, with the help of Jaine's neighbor, an unpredictable police detective, the puzzle must be solved as the dream of Mr. Perfect becomes a chilling nightmare.
"One of my early favorites is Lynn Raye Harris and her HOT (Hostile Operations Team) series, of course I advocate reading them in order, very well written, alpha male and strong minded females, a great way to become addicted to reading." He took her innocence. He broke her heart. He's the only one who can save her life... Ten years ago Army Captain Matt Girard did something he shouldn’t. His best friend offered him her virginity--and he took it. Then he left town and he’s never looked back. Until now.
Matt still makes Evie Baker’s heart pound, but she wants nothing to do with him--especially since he’s only home for a short visit. She’s had enough of men who lie and promise things they don’t deliver. But when her sister goes missing and her ex-boyfriend turns up dead, she’s in desperate need of Matt’s military black ops skills to save the day.
With time running out, Matt puts everything on the line--his career, his future, his heart. Even if it means sacrificing all he’s worked for, he won’t let Evie down this time. Because sometimes the reward is worth the price--especially when it’s the one woman he’s never been able to forget….
"Julie (Haggard) recommended this book to me when we first met at Pens on Fire in February 2016. JM was signing and happened to have a copy so I snatched it up. I started the book the next night and before I knew it, my clock read 3 AM and I had finished it! This is a book I literally couldn't put down! But have a box of tissues with you when you read it." Matt Calvin has watched Gina Carruthers sway up and down the doctor's office hallway once a month for four long years. It’s time to do something about this fascination he has with her. He knows he's not relationship material, but he doesn’t expect it to get that far. He just wants to talk to her, and put himself out of his misery once and for all. Things never go as planned, though, and when fantasy crashes and burns into reality, Gina pays the price.
Gina doesn’t blame Matt for her injury, but she is appreciative when he steps into her crazy life to help out. Proximity fires the sudden attraction between them and Gina can’t believe she’s overlooked the sexy carpenter for this long. Tattooed and intimidating, he’s not the type she's normally drawn to, but something about him tugs at her heartstrings.
When a dire situation develops and they have to save a little boy, Matt loses control of his tightly held emotions. Though his heart aches, Matt walks away, both for Gina’s safety and his own sanity. It’s up to Gina to convince him love can heal any heartache.
"This book, and the series were introduced to me when I started Jr High School by one of the coaches, and F-4 Phantom pilot in Vietnam. It's the autobiography of the founder of SEAL Team Six. It's about his life in becoming a SEAL, the tests, and the hell he put his men through to make them an expert in their deadly skill set. His antics earned him appearances in Soldier of Fortune magazine as well as the infamous nickname of "Sharkman of the Delta" and a price on his head from the Viet Cong. His take no shit approach to get things done definitely jars you for how it's done. I'd recommend his other two books I keep on my shelf for reference, Leadership Secrets of the Rogue Warrior: A Commando's Guide to Success and The Rogue Warrior's Strategy for Success: A Commando's Principles of Winning for his take no holes bared approach to getting things done."
"Perfectly Imperfect by Harper Sloan is my Friday Fav!! I belong to a few book groups and had been reading a lot of Alpha Men books. Someone in my group had suggested Perfectly Imperfect and on a whim I bought it. Let me tell you that this book spoke to me on so many levels and reminded me that “perfect” comes in all shapes and sizes. Reading Willow’s story made me feel so many emotions and when an author can do that, you know it’s a good read!" Blurb **Standalone novel** Mirror, mirror … who’s the fairest of them all?
I still cringe when I hear that line. A fairy tale that had girls pretending they were the fairest, the most beautiful, and the most entitled. A fairy tale most couldn’t grow out of turned my haunted childhood memories into a living nightmare. Girls who grew up believing that pile of garbage became the meanest of all ‘mean girls.’ And those mean girls were right – it was a line meant for all the beautiful people in the world – and I knew the answer would never be me.
The women with long legs, flat stomachs, and perfect chests.
The type of women Kane Masters gravitated toward.
Well, that’s definitely not Willow Tate.
No. That will never be me.
Because I’m completely imperfect.
And … I hate myself.
I have no idea what Kane could possibly see in someone like me when he could have them.
"I love that she researches and consults people in the MC world to make her books not only believable but as true to real life as possible"
